    If the bin holds thousands of dollars worth of stuff then the value of the bracket or the bin goes up - i.e., it isn't the bin that most people would worry about losing, but what is in it.

    But this seems like something Mr. Bracket could emulate.

    Ha. Yea I got a dog I want to bring along too.

    I was thinking about making a roll cage out of tubular steel or welded L beams, some wind blocking in the form of cheap plastic, and a cheap cut canvas/vinyl and button-snap water cover. Drop in/out of the motomule if I could get one when I want to bring the pup.

    Anyone wants to sell their Moto Mule. I need one for a road trip. The company is not making them right now he is trying to get caught up with orders.

    I just came across the MOTO-MULE . After I was looking around for an idea for my motorcycle to tow my mountain bike . So VOILA , there I came across the Moto-Mule . I love it , and I want one .

    I went to their website to see the details and specs etc as well as price . But I see they are currently moving shop , and website is down .

    I own a KTM 950 ADVENTURE and was hopuing to find out if any has been fitted to the KTM . How much do they go for ? I will need the basic trailer with ROTOPAX mounts etc and lights . I will fabricate my own set-up to take two Mountain-bikes .

    How much will everything cost include shipping ? Can I get it only primered so that I can paint it orange etc ?

    Found this yesterday. Would apply to anyone who wants to stiffen up their ActionPacker and possibly attach things to the side of it.

    When are these Moto-Mules going to continue production? I'm fairly interested in one!


    Edit: Totally didn't see the post a few up from mine. If you check out the SWAG (terrible name) website they have a pretty neat stand for a portable bandsaw. Neat.

    I'm sorry you cannot get one right now,
    but it's worth the wait until he gets his new shop set up.

    I really like mine, I've had it over a year now.
    He supplied an axle nut with a hole in the middle for the trailer's rod/mount to go through the otherwise hollow axle.
    It follows me just about anywhere I wanna take it,....while packing enough extra luxuries to shame a Beemer rider !!

    would you be able to make some sort of bracket for the f650gs/f700gs/f800gs? I have an 800 and would like to pull a trailer with it, something i can drag all my junk around with me wherever i go:D

    I'm building the trailer because he isn't selling right now and I like to tinker, but the f800GS isn't really trailer friendly as far as mounting options go. if I had a mill I could make my own from a billet of aluminum, but I don't. anyone in central Texas have a mill and some free time to tinker?

    FWIW: If you haven't talked to him in a while, he called me today and just finished my new hitch today so I think he's setup at his new location and running.

    Edit: Just to be clear, I was referring to Juan at Third Wheel Trailers(the pic I posted).

    Hey everyone, I posted up an update on my facebook page. The shop I'm moving into isn't quite ready yet, so I have time to build one or two more trailers before moving. Send me an email if you'd like to have one right away.

    I might be insane, but who isn't?

    I've got a 2012 Triumph Daytona and I'm looking to get one of these so I can haul gear to the track (selling my tow vehicle right now). Would love to have this for long trips as well.

    Would this be mountable on something what wasn't a dual-sport? Any possibility of getting one of these before September or November even? There's a track weekend coming up and I would love to get one before then!

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Rear tail section for reference:

    [​IMG]

    I've got some frame sliders on there, I wonder if I could use those or something similar as the hook-up point?

    Send Mr.Bracket a PM through the forum.If that rear axle is hollow,he maybe able to come up with a mounting solution.
